In 1979, when this kitchen first appeared in a book called Planning & Remodeling Kitchens, it was the height of chic. I think we can all agree that that giant window is still delightful, but the color scheme seems very, very, 70s. And those tile countertops! You would never see tile countertops in a modern kitchen. Or would you?

Kitchen

I'm drawn to this room...maybe the simplicity, rustic table and mis-matched chairs (always a love of mine), the chalkboard wall, the wildflowers naturally making a statement, or maybe just because I'm so used to seeing toys in my dining room too! :) Its sheer inspiration to me.

Chalkboard refrigerator doors...brilliant!

Cool "Mad Men" kitchen!

open shelving. like the idea of the wire with clips to display kids artwork. might have to steal this idea.

The details are the best part of this small kitchen- herringbone wood floors, contrasting white and blue cabinetry with gold drawer pulls, industrial lighting fixture and lots of natural light!

I like the coffee mug holder idea. I use that bar from Ikea to hold my necklaces. This is a great idea.
